my wheel recently went to shit and i need a new wheel. my friend said he has a fit stock wheel (stock sealed hub, 440 rim, etc.) for $50 and its in pretty good condition. i have a primo pro cassette hub that needs pawls and springs that i want to lace up to a new sun big baller rim 36h with 12g spokes. but these NEW parts will cost me around $80. i was thinking that if i buy my friends stock rim im eventually going to have to buy a new wheel within the year considering how hard i ride and how fast i go through parts. but if i get the semi-new setup, im going to have to wait 3 days for parts and im going to have to lace it up myself and spend an extra $15.

tl;dr: should i just get my friends rim for $50 and save up to buy a whole new custom wheel soon. or should i buy a new rim, spokes, pawls for $80 and wait 3 days?

i think the stock hub would work if you reaaally wanna save money, but you will most definitely get more life out of your wheel if you go the other way and spend a little bit more. the cheaper way is always tempting, but you usually end up paying more in the long run because of it.

yea im going to go with the primo setup cause its going to be laced to a sun rim with 12g spokes so the wheel will be bomb proof.

I seek progression, not perfection.

im pretty sure that sun rims and 12g spokes are bomb proof. ive seen gsport wheels break and i personally broke 2 hazard hubs.

Honestly, I thought that was an asshole thing to say that because I know that's all you can get right now. However, that G-sport To Hazard Would last longer than that Primo to Sun. NO DOUBT!
